Tech Holiday Gifts: MP3 Player Comparison

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) —‘Tis the season where many people purchase the latest tech gadgets. MP3 players and cameras are just two of the items that could be a great gift for kids and adults.

WCCO stopped by Best Buy to do a little comparison shopping.

Sansa makes an MP3 player that’s comparable to the iPod Shuffle. It has some nice features the Shuffle doesn’t.

For example, when you compare the Sansa Clip Zip to the iPod Shuffle, the 4GB the Clip Zip can store twice as many songs.

The iPod Shuffle only has 2GB.

The Zip Clip also has a 1-inch color screen which the Shuffle doesn’t. The Shuffle is made to be really compact. Both come in a variety of colors.

“(It’s great for) anyone on the go that doesn’t want to take up pocket space,” said Best Buy worker, Nate Hartness.

The Sansa Clip Zip MP3 player retails for $49.99.

When it comes to cameras, GoPro has a new line out that is durable and made to take some serious abuse.

“It’d be a great gift for anyone who likes doing sporting activities and things outside,” said Hartness.

There’s a line of accessories to mount and strap the GoPro cameras to just about anything.

GoPro Hero cameras retail between $149 to $299.
